COVID-19 Resources Archive

As the environment and information surrounding the pandemic has evolved, we have archived a number of our resources and tools developed over the past year.

Practice Resources

  • Protecting the Front Line: COVID-19 Day-to-Day Questions: CPhA has created an FAQs resource to help pharmacists manage day-to-day questions about COVID-19 in their pharmacies. This information is meant to support policy, practice and clinical guidelines being developed across the country, and will answer key questions pharmacists may have when supporting their patients during the pandemic. (Updated March 25, 2021)
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Suggested Best Practices for Pharmacies During the COVID-19 Pandemic: CPhA has updated its suggested best practices on the use of PPE by pharmacy staff. Changes include considerations for use of non-medical masks/cloth masks/cloth face coverings as a source control measure, additional clarity on applying point-of-care risk assessments to determine when and what PPE is required and the application of these PPE best practices for immunizations.

  • Staffing and Business Considerations if a Pharmacy Team Member Becomes Ill: CPhA and the Neighbourhood Pharmacy Association of Canada have developed a list of key considerations for pharmacy managers/owners to help them prepare for next steps if a pharmacy staff member is exposed to or infected with COVID-19. This document will help pharmacies prepare for staff reductions or store closures and offers guidance on staff reductions, self-assessment and connecting with local public health units.
